Another Year of Scholarship Success for Daneshill Pupils

Ahead of the half term break, news reached us of yet another successful year of 11+ common entrance results to senior schools.

All of the pupils sitting their entrance examinations performed well and should be proud of their achievements. Of particular note though are the 7 Daneshill pupils who were awarded scholarships.

The following pupils were recognised for their achievements:

  • Abigail Cooper            Sports Scholarship                  Queen Anne’s Caversham
  • Celine Harborne          Academic Scholarship             Downe House
  • Daniel Budd                 Academic Scholarship             Lord Wandsworth
  • Harry Badger              Music Scholarship                    Lord Wandsworth
  • Jessica Blunden         Academic Scholarship             The Abbey
  • Natalia Smithers          Academic Scholarship             Farnborough Hill
  • Natalia Smithers          Academic Scholarship             St. Swithun’s
  • Sean Neale                 Academic Scholarship             Lord Wandsworth

Given that 24 pupils are leaving Daneshill at Year 6, this proposes close to a 1 in 3 scholarship conversion rate, which is an incredible endorsement to the hard work put in by both the pupils and teachers at the School.

We would like to pass on our congratulations to everyone concerned.

Although we have news of further scholarship success from Year 8 we will wait to announce these results once all of the exams have been completed and the results announced to the relevant parties.
